August has flown by quickly and I do not feel like I have had one minute to enjoy the all too short summer season. But I do feel like I have accomplished much. I am very well settled in my new home, boxes are all unpacked, getting pictures on the wall, and feeling content. I just finished 2 more online college classes and waiting for grades, starting my next 2 classes next week. Giving some thought to something, actually I have decided to do it. The town I am living in has a townwide garage sale every September. I remember doing it about 20 years ago. I have lived here before when my kids were very little. I have decided to sign up for a table and now I have just a bit under 2 weeks to make up a bunch of small inexpensive things, maybe bracelets and keychains. I think I will put my Etsy shop in vacation mode for that weekend and take all the items from the shop. Should be a fun weekend if it does not rain. But I better go pick up my beading needles.

The irony here is I have spent the last 20 years of my life living right in the middle of downtown of my city. I have lived less than a 5 minutes walk away from the market, the bank, the library the park and have spent my summers enjoying the hustle and bustle of a town full of tourists coming in to spend their money at the harness track.
Now here I am. Absolutely nothing within walking distance. I have to learn to shop for at least 2 weeks at a time, arrange rides to do my banking and bill paying and instead of the hustle and bustle of tourists I am listening to birds and crickets and gentle mooing.
This may be the best thing I have done for myself in a long, long time once I am used to the change in how I take care of the things mentioned above. I may get to concentrate better on my school work. I may be able to create more and better pieces, course that depends on how I can get those last minute supplies that I don't like to bulk order but yes, I am now a country girl. We shall see how it goes.
